Born in Dublin on February 1st 1981, this 27 year old solo artist began her interest in music at a very young age. Coming from a family and being the only girl with two brothers, Luan and her brothers were typical teenagers where she describes they “Refuse to elaborate”

She started learning guitar to accompany herself at talent competitions. She acquired the guitar she still has today through a rather unfortunate event. A J Walkers, It belonged to a guy who was killed at a bus stop while traveling around Australia! It found it’s way back to Ireland and into her fathers hands and then past onto herself.

Taking vocal lessons from her father, a vocal coach, she kick started her career at the tender age of 12 recording her very own album, signed a 5-year contract with Anim Records, continued to play in bands until finishing school at 18.

Signed to Sony in June 2001 after being spotted by A & R man Hugh Murray, Luan released a couple of early singles and then her album “Free”
In February 2007 the young Wicklow woman received the prestigious Meteor award for “Best Irish Female Artist” at Dublin’s Point venue following an extensive public vote. She has worked and written in the US, UK and Ireland with legends such as Bill Bottrell, Stephen Lironi and Chris Kimsey

” Free is something of a cracker, the sort of album that could, given half a chance, seduce America”

(Paul Byrne - Independent)

“Her voice invites comparison with a young Stevie Nicks but the full range of her vocal talents on the album means it would be an injustice to make pat comparisons. By this time next year, she could well be taking Nashville by storm”
